It is sad that summer is now mostly in the rear-view mirror. When I was a child summers seemed to last forever. We played in the woods, went swimming down at the pool, and watched tv till the wee hours of the night. Now, I remember blinking. Now summer is over. And goodness the world is picking up pace.
September is booked for me. My fourth story, The Life and Times of Lewis Agnew, has been turned into ink. The anthology follows a town on the brink of global annihilation. A meteorite was found on its way to earth. The government figures this might be a planet killer. A small town in Tennessee has a plan. They have an old salt mine that they are going to use as a sanctuary. With the hopes that they will be safe underground from the coming apocalypse. There is just one problem. The mine isn’t big enough for the whole town. There will be people that don’t make it in.
My story follows along Lous Agnew, the local department store manager. He transfers the store inventory to the mine: food, clothes, cots, everything. Then he finds out he isn’t included, just the store inventory.
